Since my wife’s morning sickness is starting to ebb — we’re decorating today!
And, since it’s Sunday, this is also my Weekly Review day and family day, so I didn’t have much time to draw.
I’m trying out a new (for me) program today — ArtRage! I gotta say, I’m not a huge fan of the interface, but I AM a huge fan of recording “scripts” to make video files of JUST the canvas.
That will come in handy as I get back to teaching, for sure.
ArtRage for gesture drawing felt incredibly awkward, too. I think I’m just used to the brush engine for Krita, so I’ll probably go back to Krita for day-to-day use and just use ArtRage for instruction purposes.
And, after gesture drawing, I helped my wife wrangle the kids into various art projects for the holidays. She loves to decorate!
What went well?
- Painting time with the kids.
- Keeping the chain going.
- Trying out some new software for digital drawing.
What needs work?
- I need to familiarize myself a little bit with ArtRage if I want to use it to teach.
- More study time on Sundays!
- My sleep quality.
What did I learn?
Everyone has different preferences for their tools — myself included. Find what works and stick to it!
